plus sized rider w/ plus sized feet >.<
 
Alright. I'm 5'11". I wear a size 12 in mens. I cannot for the life of me fit into a size 11 womens even though the shoe experts tell me I should be able to. I am currently using the only boot I have to ride ... a work boot with a steel toe with massive treads. Not safe...I know. Is it completely impossible to find a cute girly western style boot in my size? Cause it seems to be ...without having customs made. Does anyone out there have the same situation or maybe know where I can find some nice riding boots without having to wear men's? Cause I'm quite sick of it. Any help would be apprechiated!

Ooooooo I really like the ariats in the mens. The greenish ones. Now... to spend 230 bucks on some boots lol I better start saving....but I bet if they are ariats they are comfy! Thanks :)

I liked those too! But yea, i didnt look at prices til after i posted. I would never spend that much, but a good pair of boots is probably worth their weight in gold ;)

I understand your problem, although not as big as yours (no pun intended) it's hard for me to find shoes/boots in women's sizes. I wear a 11wide, or 12 in womens, usually 10 wide in mens..... And dress shoes... Thank goodness I rarely go anywhere where I need them!

Good luck with finding a good pair!

its nice to know someone has the same problem. Its odd though because I have heels and clog heels that are cute and size 12. And I can fit into those great...but yes they are starting to collect dust... :)

I'm an 11 in women's & a 10 1/2 in men's but I have found certain store by searching online that carry my sizes in store..... I love my Ariats! My hubby is a 14 so I totally understand your frustration on finding boots. Look up Drysdsles.com

I wear a pair of Ariat mens' work boots, although they don't really look like them... They look more like riding boots, but they're extremely durable and they actually fit in my stirrups without a problem, (well, as little as a problem as you can manage when you have feet like mine. :-P)

I have ridiculously wide feet; I could wear about an eight in women's if it weren't for how wide they are, so I actually wear a 10 in mens' boots. I like my Ariats because they're wide enough to be comfortable but are still alright to ride in. The only problem is that my legs have gotten even more muscular from how heavy the things are! :lol:

Lol I know how that goes with the heavyness of the work boots, the other day I wore them all day and switched to tennis shoes.... I was shocked lol
Thanks everyone for all the great cites at least now I have some selection. I actually found a pink western boot (like hot pink) in mens on the boot barn website....and a pair of purple ones! Awesome! Now....to save money cause I want both pairs....lol
